A Day in A Life: The Carmel of St. Joseph

February 19, 2010
Nestled on the outskirts of the tiny community of St. Agatha, Ontario lies the Carmel of St. Joseph, the home of a cloistered, contemplative community of Carmelite Nuns. They observe their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in joy, and direct their lives toward prayer and the contemplation of the things of God.
carmel1A few years ago, three of us had the wonderful opportunity to spend a day with the sisters behind the cloister. I can say with certainty that not just anyone gets to go behind the cloister and that no males had ever been. The sisters very graciously allowed our S+L crew, Wally, Paul and myself, to spend the day with them and to document their day with our two cameras.
The result is a wonderful half-hour special, where we get to see what the life at the Carmel is and what being a Carmelite is all about.
A Day in a Life: The Carmel of St. Joseph will premier on Saturday, February 20th at 9pm ET (6pm and 10pm PT).
